Dance Sexy with Salsa and be Sexy


The Cuban beat. The swaying of the hips. The movement. The Salsa is a dance that incorporates the dance styling of Rumba, Cha Cha, Ballroom Dancing and many other Latin and European beat dances. The term Salsa was taken from the Spanish word for sauce. The dance itself is a sauce, with ingredients from many cultures. And just like the Spanish sauce, this dance is of the spicy variety. Salsa dancing is a passionate rhythmic dance that is fast and intimate.

Salsa dance is based largely on footwork and rhythm. The two partners, usually a woman and a man, face each other while dancing. There are two positions in Salsa dance. The Open position and the closed position. In an open position, the man leads the woman by holding her hand, which is important when the lead turns, spins or moves his partner. In the Closed position, the man lead his partner by placing his arm and hand on the woman’s back, and the woman, in turn, places her hand on her partner’s shoulder. Both partners dance in a back step and a front step that is similar to the Cha Cha Cha dance. The upper body remains level while the feet move causing the hips to shift in what is infamously called the Cuban hip movement.

Although there are technically simple and basic rules on how to dance Salsa, because of its many roots in a variety of dances, Salsa is very open to improvisation. This is what makes it so much fun. Its all about the rhythm and feeling the music move your hips and feeling your partner and move with his or her movements on the dance floor

Courses to teach salsa dance are available everywhere and can be easily found on the internet. Also online videos and DVDs show instructions as well as technique. Most videos teach salsa dance step by step for both partners. It also shows the many different variations and steps in salsa. Most of the dancing in salsa is done by feel and by rhythm. Once you are taught the basic steps, the dancer can freely dance within that system. The Salsa is a vibrant dance and can portray passion and intimacy. Learning how to dance can improve your dancing skills not only with salsa but with a number of other dances. Since it is a distillation of many other dances, learning Salsa will also make you familiar with a variety of dances including the Mambo, the Cha Cha and Merengue. Learning how to dance salsa also exercises your body and makes you fit. It also increases your confidence and teaches how to move with and around other women. Learn Salsa now and add some spice in your life.
